Hello! As some of you may know, it was my Birthday on Saturday. My boyfriend treated me to a lot of nail goodies - including some Princess Nail Lacquers and Glam Polishes, the new Uberchic Beauty 'Party Time' plate, and a new helmer! One of the Princess Nail Lacquers he picked up was 'Birthday Cake', so I had to put it on my nails straight away. I paired it with the Uberchic plate, and my birthday nails were born!

Hello! Today I have something a bit different for you. One of my nail resolutions for the year is to get through some of my untried polishes - I have a bad habit of buying a LOT more than I wear. Instead of sharing each one as I go, I thought I'd group them into posts of four or so at a time. I received a massive bundle of Ever After Polish (aswell as Nvr Enuff Polish) for Christmas, so I'm starting with some of those. Read on for full swatches and more info!

*Press Sample*Hello! Today I'm back with another OccasioNail post. If you missed my initial swatches and review of the new brand, you can find that post here. Linda recently sent me some more of her polishes to share with you, including her personal favourite 'Lagoon'. She has decided to offer this at a special price for the month of February. I thought it deserved a post of it's own, so read on for my swatch!

Hello lovelies! Today I'm back with another 26 Great Nail Art Ideas mani, although the two weeks since the last one (post here) has gone very quickly! This time the prompt is 'Red and Pink'. I wasn't 100% sure on what I wanted to do for this one. I couldn't decide between stamping or a gradient so I ended up going with both. I went for all Barry M Cosmetics polishes, and came up with this look. Read on to find out more!

Hello! Today I'm finally doing another twin mani with my nail bestie Kirsty (FairyTales Nails). We haven't done one since February (post here), although we're always wearing the same polishes. I accidentally got two bottles of Nvr Enuff indie shop exclusive 'San Francisco' at Christmas, so I sent one to Kirsty - we decided straight away to use it a base for a twin mani. Here is what we came up with. Read on to find out more and for a closer look at my mani!

*Press Sample*Hello! Today I'm back with swatches and a review of new indie brand OccasioNail. The owner of the brand Linda makes micro batches of polish for occasions such as weddings and birthdays, but also creates polish collections. Linda was kind enough to send me three polishes from the new Winter 2017 collection. They were carefully wrapped in butterfly tissue paper and packaged in cute little boxes. Read on for full swatches and more info!

*Press Sample*Hello! Today I have a quick swatch of a polish from UK indie Opulent Essences to share with you. The lovely Sharon knows I love everything orange, and was kind enough to send a bright sparkly prototype one my way. It hadn't been properly named yet, and as it looked quite 'fizzy' to me, we decided to name it 'Tango'. Read on for my swatch and more info!

Hello! Today I'm back with my mani for December's 'No Place Like Home' MeeBox. If you missed my unboxing and swatches of the Wizard of Oz inspired box, you can find my post here. I absolutely loved the theme and had so many nail art ideas. I wanted to use all of the items we recieved, so decided to go for a mix and match design. Read on to find out more!

*Press Sample*Hi! Today I'm back with another review for Born Pretty Store. This time I have a polish and a set of mermaid scale water decals to share. The polish is from Born Pretty's holographic range, which I believe is new (or I have managed to miss them until now!). I decided on the green shade, as I thought it would pair well with the decals, as shown below. Read on to find out more!

Hello! Today I'm back with the first 26 Great Nail Art Ideas theme for 2016, 'New Year New You'. I had planned to try watermarbling, but it just didn't happen. Instead I based my mani around my resolutions. One of my smaller nail/blog ones is to use matte topcoat more often. While not an official resolution, I also want to get back into reading a bit more. I combined the two together to create these matte book nails. Read on for more info!

Hi lovelies! Today I'm back with my unboxing and swatches of December's MeeBox. If you missed Novembers box, you can find my post here. December's theme is 'No Place Like Home' and is inspired by The Wizard of Oz. I was super excited to receive my box, and it contained everything I'd hoped for and more. I'm sorry in advance if I'm over enthusiastic and say I love everything, but I honestly do! Read on for full swatches and a look at everything inside!

Hi lovelies! Today I have some fun nail art to share with you - a textured mermaid mani. Now this might not seem like the most seasonally appropriate theme, and it's not festive (at all) but it just sort of happened! I originally intended just to swatch the base polish, and I got carried away and ended up with this. Read on to find out more!
